An avid outdoorsman, Leon Leonwood Bean wanted to create a comfortable, dry pair of boots for tromping through the backwoods of Maine. Today our signature "duck" boots are still sewn right here in Maine, one pair at a time, from premium full-grain leather. A supportive steel shank and our original rubber chain-tread bottom give you unmatched comfort. While many boots on the market might look similar to L.L.Bean Boots, they lack the attention to detail and the premium-quality materials that have allowed ours to stand the test of time.Best Sizing for These L.L.Bean Boots: With light- or midweight socks: Whole sizes, order one size down.
